With a modern coastal aesthetic and beachy landscaping setting the tone, homeowner Blake embarked on a DIY project to transform his front yard into a private oasis. His vision was a secure, stylish, cost-effective solution that elevates his property’s street appeal. Enter ModularWalls’ EstateWall,® a game-changer in outdoor wall solutions.

Enhancing street appeal and captivating passers-by

Homeowner Blake wanted to replace an old fence offering little privacy with something similar to a rendered brick wall. While rendered brick would offer the modern coastal and beachy landscaping aesthetic he was after, the labour-intensive installation and costs were a drawback. So, when Blake found ModularWalls’ EstateWall,® it ticked all the boxes: it mirrors a rendered masonry wall, is easily customisable, and is fast to install.

One aspect that particularly appealed to Blake was EstateWall’s wide posts, which emulate the stately piers of a traditional brick wall. While providing the desired aesthetic appeal, these posts offer structural integrity and durability, ensuring long-lasting performance. What’s more, compared to a rendered brick wall, EstateWall® emerges as a more cost-effective solution — a win-win for Blake and his budget-conscious approach.

“I chose EstateWall as it delivers a grand look and makes a really nice statement.”

Customisation is key for beachy landscaping

One of the standout features of Blake’s project was his decision to customise the EstateWall® with Hardie™ Oblique™ Cladding, giving it a unique and personalised touch. By incorporating the cladding and using DecoWood, Blake achieves the beachy landscaping feel he desired, adding texture and visual interest to the overall design.

But Blake didn’t stop there. Recognising the importance of functionality alongside aesthetics, he seamlessly integrated a letterbox into the EstateWall,® marrying practicality with style.

“Living close to the beach, I was chasing that modern coastal look.”

Protecting peace of mind

Previously, the front yard was open and offered little privacy or security. Installing the EstateWall® front wall established a clear and secure front boundary giving Blake’s lush tropical garden shelter and providing an aesthetic focal point in the front yard. Having a small backyard, the family now has an additional outdoor area to enjoy out of view of passers-by. Additionally, the sliding driveway gate* adds an extra layer of security, granting Blake and his family peace of mind, knowing their property is well-protected.

“EstateWall definitely achieves the privacy and security we were looking for.”

Beachy landscaping needs a durable solution like EstateWall®

One of the standout advantages of ModularWalls’ EstateWall® over traditional timber fences or rendered brick alternatives is its exceptional durability. While timber fences are prone to warping and rotting over time, requiring frequent maintenance and eventual replacement, EstateWall® remains steadfast and resilient in weathering and wear. Similarly, rendered brick fences may exude an initial charm, but over time, the render is susceptible to cracking, detracting from the overall aesthetic. In contrast, EstateWall’s robust construction and innovative materials ensure long-term stability and performance, providing peace of mind for homeowners like Blake who seek a lasting solution for their outdoor spaces.

Effortless DIY installation

With an eye for detail and a penchant for hands-on projects, Blake installed the EstateWall® as a DIY endeavour. After his workday ended and on weekends, he dedicated his time to bringing his vision to life. Thanks to his meticulous craftsmanship and the versatility of EstateWall,® the front yard exudes charm and sophistication.

Reflecting on the installation process, Blake found it to be surprisingly straightforward. ModularWalls’ EstateWall® system proved user-friendly, allowing him to navigate the installation easily. He tackled each step methodically, following the installation guide instructions and using the right tools, saw his vision come to fruition.

As Blake admires the finished result of his front yard transformation, he couldn’t be happier choosing ModularWalls. The EstateWall® met and exceeded his expectations, delivering on both style and functionality. With its sleek design, customisable options, and ease of installation, Blake happily endorses EstateWall.

“I’d definitely recommend choosing ModularWalls. It’s quite a simple process, looks great, and has lots of different styles. I’m sure you’ll be really happy with it.”
